that there are cheaper technological solutions to our national security problem and the most obvious exponents of this is drones and other remote wrote -- invading a country, you can just the public perceives and many of thes received drone along its border. there's a fascinating strategic conversation about whether that is correct and will work out over time. there's also as anyone who has worked in this field knows, the fact that technology is rather expensive and that also justifies the need for an endless growing budget if your security is completely dependent on keeping your high tech offense ahead of both lower tech defense your adversaries will navigate against you. so technology is put forward and believed by the public to be a budget panacea but it is not. the third point that should be made about appetite is -- i would go further and say we saw in this election at the presidential level and the congressional level went across party lines and effort to make candidates pay for expressing willingness to cut pentagon spending and had zero effect and the massive infusion of corporate cont

pressures and the uncertainties, and also other technology companies really did not have very good quarters as well. i thought the company did a very good job on execution, on cross control and market share gains. the fact that this company is grow revenues at 5.5% while its peers saw revenues decline 4.3% in the same time period, it really speaks to the market share gains that they're seeing and that the clear highlights to me were service provider video, retireless and data center all growing double digits nicely. >> kelly and i were talking about this earlier. cisco seems to sort of outperform -- seems to be an outliar. does well when others aren't and doesn't do well when others are. i'm wondering is that actually the case? because that's the appearance. and indeed whether we can take anything for the sector from this. >> i think the one thing that if you want to take away from cisco's quarter is that the u.s. enterprise for cisco grew 9%, versus 5% last quarter. that's the second quarter in a row where you saw acceleration. and this is a leading indicator for its broader businesses. th

defense technology. should we have discussion about this defense strategy? >> a couple thoughts. you say how do we invest domestic affairs, money we don't have. depending on the nature of the deal to raise revenue, basically you are saying money you are not spending will be available for the purpose of public investment depends on the larger parameters of the budget deal. as for waste in the pentagon mentioned whether my colleagues for a percentage on, it is the and pervasive and depends how you define it. if you are buying a weapon you down need, i would say yes. there are smaller waist in terms of procurement policy and so forth, but that is the key target. we could do a whole panel on an alternate strategy but it is clear that on nuclear weapons, preparing for counterinsurgency and the overly optimistic sense of what we can do with drones and naval power. of these are things to consider but we could have a whole conference on it. >> one barry specific way of thinking about waste is during this period of growth that the slide shows, there was astronomical growth in contracting and the
